How do I implement a simple search ?

The server holds a large file of the LISTSERV mailing lists, with one
mailing list per line. I want to:

  - ask the user for a keyword
  - extract from the file all lines containing this keyword
  - present the results to the user.

(I'm no expert in either WWW or unix - yet).
